I assumed everyone had heard about this amazing story when it happened back in September, so never bothered to post it. But after repeated looks of confusion whenever I mention it in water cooler conversations, I realized some people actually exist who haven’t heard it. So I’ve decided to let you all in on what is undoubtedly the greatest email to an employer in the history of mankind.

The story is quite simple:
A 20-year-old college student emailed a potential employer about a job opening and, instead of attaching her résumé, she accidentally sent a photo of Nicolas Cage.

As she explains so eloquently:
“Jesus Christ I accidently sent my potential future boss a picture of Nic Cage rather than my cover letter+resume, which was a zip file titled with a bunch of numbers like the JPG I accidentally attached oh my God!”

Below is a copy of the email for your enjoyment, and after you read it answer me one simple question. How could this girl NOT get the job? This is the single greatest email ever, is it not? Come on, be honest, you’d hire her, right?
